Caring for a child with a life-shortening condition is a full time job. We know that our families would really appreciate some support in their own homes in two particular areas - practical tasks and sibling support.
As a Home Support Volunteer you will be matched to one family to visit on a weekly on-going basis.
You might be interested in one of these areas or all.
We are currently looking for individuals aged 18 or over who can visit
families within their own homes, once a week for a minimum of 2-4 hours. Our Home Support Volunteers roles are
flexible and available 7 days per week.
Travel time will also need to be considered (this is unlikely to be more than a one hour drive from Rachel House in Kinross) but we will try to keep this to a minimum where possible.
We are looking for volunteers covering a 30 mile radius from Rachel House.
It is important to us that you feel happy, safe and confident in your role.
As a CHAS Home Support volunteer you will be thoroughly trained and supported
throughout your volunteering journey with us.
Before you start your role you will receive an induction to CHAS, along with an assessed learning package which will consist of 4 x 3 hour weekly sessions which is tailored to your role (these sessions will take place via Zoom due to the current Covid-19 restrictions).
Along with this, you will also receive regular support and supervision.
We are always developing new opportunities for volunteers to learn and offer a range of options for volunteers including ongoing training and volunteer meet ups.
Home Support Volunteers must be aged 18 or older.
We will pay your out of pocket expenses in line with the CHAS volunteer expenses policy.
All our Home Support Volunteers require membership of the PVG scheme, CHAS will cover all costs associated with this.
If you’re interested in the role you can apply online. If you have any questions please contact the Volunteering Team on email@example.com or 0141 779 6195.
